At 4:04 p.m. police were summoned to Riverton Memorial Hospital for a man who showed up there claiming he was a victim of an assault. The man, however, did not want to talk to officers, so they left.

Police were called to the alley behind the Sears store on North Federal at 5:39 p.m. where a small group of people were watching a man and a woman wrestling on the ground. Police determined the two were intoxicated, both were transported to the Fremont County Alcohol Crisis Center. There were no arrests or citations.

A man who came home drunk in the 800 block of North Broadway just after 8 p.m. and kicked in the back door to gain entrance to his residence apparently upset his girlfriend who also lived there. Apparently she did not care that he had been drinking and wanted him out of the house. The two were separated for the evening. No arrests or citations.

About a half an hour later, police were received a call of a woman being disorderly in the 500 block of North 15th East. Upon arrival, they found a woman who had been shouting obscenities and honking her car horn at someone inside a residence in that block. She was asked by responding officers to quiet down and leave the area. She did. No arrests or citations.
